Very much. Working all kinds of different muscles.

This is great news.  The last time I've read this from you, you made a wonderful impression on me with Blood Of The Demon.  I still wish you were working on that book...  before the one year after gimmick.  I hope someday you can return to the character.

JB- How are you dealing with the likeness issue here? are you having to get everything OK'd? Will any of the supporting characters make and appearance? (Spike, Darla)

I'm looking forward to your take on the character. I was underwhelmed by the Angel show. It was ok, but lost focus quickly....

Beyond a simple "It's been dealt with", anything I might say could
potentially prove to be something of a SPOILER.

We must have watched different series!

Well, THAT's a fun tease of an answer!

JB, did you like the series the whole way through? I wasn't all that impressed with how they handled Charisma Carpenter's pregnancy. I guess it seemed to me like the powers that be didn't quite know what they wanted to do with the show.

I liked it, just didn't love it.... maybe I need to go back and rewatch them... see if I missed something. It'll be a good primer for your book anyway...

Never even seen the Buffy movie.

I have played a video game of Buffy, though.

I am completely in the dark about Angel and the Buffyverse -- possibly not a good place to be when dealing with vampires....

Patrick!

Skip the Buffy The Vampire Slayer movie with Kristy Swanson and Luke Perry
entirely, but get yourself out and get started on the real Buffyverse with the
DVDs of the TV series and the Angel series.

(Give it time to build - I didn't think much when I started the first season of
Buffy on DVD, but I am sooo glad I hung in. Some of the best television ever
produced.)

I watch a ton of TV but some popular things I've just never watched: Buffy (obviously), Sienfield (seen 3 or 4 shows), Simpsons (maybe 2 shows), South Park (a couple shows).

I've seen every episode of DALLAS twice, though.

LOL

I got into Buffy late.... Season 4 I think. I'd watched a couple of scattered episodes and didn't get it.... A friend loaned me the DVD's and got me hooked.

Season 1 is so-so. It doesn't really hit stride until 2. Watch them all tho... its fun. Angel is too.... I just didn't like it as much as Buffy, but I'm gonna give it another shot.... we'll see. Maybe I'm just wrong...

I liked Angel way more than Buffy. And I loved Buffy!

My ex was a Buffy fan and for some reason, because of that, I decided I didn't want to watch it. I treated Angel teh same way.

I am really interested to see how the coloring will work for this series. I also love WWI and WWII comic storylines. Its such an interesting time period!!

The pencils look better and better. I am looking forward to this series.

Just my 2 cents. Angel was a better show than Buffy start to finish.
